technology. a big question here is whether business relationships can transcend and perhaps ease long-standing political tensions. the peak-hour traffic in taipei is evidence of taiwan's growth as a powerhouse of development. taiwan's affluen is reflected in the high level of motor-vehicle ownership. in the past, it became known around world as a producer of cheap labor-intensive goods, such as clothing and textiles. today it is a major player in the development and manufacture of high-tech computer and telecom pructs and among the world's most rapidly developing economies. how was this change possible? just 60 years ago taiwan's economy was based largely on agriculture. its modernization began with the development of labor-intensive light-manufacturing industries. by the 1960s the world began to recognize the "made in taiwan" label on clothing and footwear. in the 1980s, taiwan was supplying electronic products to world markets. but by the 1990s, machinery and information and communications products were taiwan's biggest exports. development of these industries was no accident. about
was inaugurated in january, i had gone through pretty intense re-election and talked to technology and business world and i had a mission, because out of that campaign and out of listening and be part of tech crunch and thank you for all being here. we have a great conference for the city. i announced a 17-point plan that included making sure that we stayed on top of being the innovation capital of the world. what does that mean? it means that we take advantage of the companies that are here, the technology companies that are here, to help us improve our city. to help us find solutions to old problems. to create an innovative spirit in the public-private sector. >> are these some of the points? because you are going to talk about the 17 points? >> oh, yes. >> is that five of them or is that a preamble to the 17? >> it's a preamble, to create the spirit of the city and why we're doing it because here are the facts. 32,000 jobs created by 1600 companies with an annual almost 30% growth for our city >> just in tech? >> just in tech. when you recognize that for the city and what it means,
if they know personally, they have trouble convincing others. with education technology, we have no particular way to evaluate claims. we have a lot of abilities to assess how we try to teach the particular goals of the systems and how it ends up. it ends up to huge barriers for the entrepreneur. they can come up with something that i think might be a great tool in the classroom. but we have to convince everybody that it will actually work. they have to go school system by school system and they engaged arduously to convince people to use their product. and that is only one school system for entrepreneurs. entrepreneurs don't survive very long if they can't find anyone to help out. there are huge barriers. if you look at healthy innovations, take a smart phones, many of you have smart phones now, tablets, the internet, then apple comes up with the iphone and the operating system and android is the computing platform. within two years, we have 85 new different companies -- excuse me some 85,000 new different companies developing applications. why is that not happening in education? it's just no
of that is technology. part of that is the efficiency of the building. part of is it is hoteling, but if you think about their traditional tenants and all the tenants in america get smaller by 30% without firing anybody, we wouldn't have to build any office buildinged for a long period of time. so what is remarkable about what is going on in the bay area, we have been able to absorb that contraction in the tenants, which jk put on the front page today and managed to overwhelm that with growth in technology and technology-related tenants, which is why what is going on in the bay area today is so extraordinary relative to what is going on in the rest of commercial real estate across the country. when we look at this, in practical terms, here is a prototypically way for a tenant in an office building. this layout allows people to reach a ratio of 110 square feet per person or over nine people per thousand square feet. this density, i think, is very important. it means a couple of things. first, it means that san francisco and other transit-rich locations will win over suburban greenfield sites, where proj

are designed to make these great technology locations. looking forward we have tied up the site at 5th and brandon as part of the capitol corridor project and what until recently has been a neighborhood that nobody thought of for office. but given the access to the train, given the access to the freeways, and given the sort of geographic dispersion that has been part of this tech renaissance, we feel this is an extraordinarily good site for a corporate campus in san francisco in the years ahead. the footprint is expanding and we feel this is where the growth in san francisco is going, not necessarily into the very tall towers that are being talked about in the heart of the transit center district. that from our perspective are difficult to pull off, given the size of those towers and the height of those towers. one last thing i want to touch on, given that thatis cycle is technology-driven i get asked three or four times a day, aren't we just falling into the same bubble that we did at that time? and clearly technology and real estate are cyclical and we will go through cycles. having

for educational technology to educate the entrepreneurial energy developing better schools so the panel has got it right in terms of what we are trying to do. the issue about power. who controls -- the person who controls that platform will have the enormous power. we will see conflict of interest to make investments in educational technology companies at the very basic level. consumer reports has a great outline of these conflict of interest rules. they don't take free samples. to make sure we are not biasing test results and the whole system starts to fall apart. the second thing is equity. it is an important issue when thinking of technology. one thing we are happy with is the ability to pick of treatment effects. that is the worry that might work for one group of kids but not another. you can actually pick that up and figure out what works for each kid. personalized learning and a revolution in health care. some equity issues contribute to mitigating those and that will be a big priority for the platform. two of the points. as a professor of business school this is one of the most exciting
respects, the power of technology and communications for this enabling people and local levels to act in ways they cannot at federally and as the act in the region and the state level it becomes then clear of the federal level what needs to be done, so from my standpoint, the beginnings of this process are sufficiently still new that it would be assertive third reason why we would be surprised by wife this relatively inaction of the federal level but at the state level a lot is going on. what lisalyn and dave are doing is informing this and energizing it to make it easier at the state level. >> why >> let me first give the most simple answer to your question him something everyone can do when they leave the room. go to the web site, www.loc.org. there is one box that shows you how to tweet and twitter of the debates and ask them to ask a question about reducing poverty and addressing your early childhood child care. you can do that, all of your friends can do that. it's easy to get enough people to do it. there's also a map that puts child care on the map encouraging to get state elec
